How to get free water park tickets on your next Disney World vacation

Walt Disney World regularly offers discounts to help guests save money on their vacations, but it does not often give things away completely for free. However, for vacations in 2025, Disney is doing just that.

Guests arriving between Jan.1 and Dec. 31, 2025, can catch a wave at one of Disney’s water parks — Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park or Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park — for free on their check-in day. Instead of waiting until the second day of your trip to start the fun, now you can start as soon as you arrive at Disney.

Tickets to Disney’s water parks usually cost $74 plus tax for adults and $68 plus tax for kids ages 3 to 9. (Kids under 3 are free at all Disney World parks.) With this special offer, a visit to one of Disney’s water parks is included in your stay.

This splashy perk is only available to guests staying at Disney Resort hotels, which includes all official Disney World hotels. However, the offer does not extend to third-party hotels like the Disney Springs hotels, the Marriott-operated Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels or Shades of Green.

Free water park admission is one of many benefits that Disney World’s on-site hotel guests can enjoy next year.

Disney Resort hotel guests can enter any of Disney’s theme parks 30 minutes before the posted opening time each day. Plus, guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts can enjoy extra nighttime hours in a specific park on select nights with Disney’s extended evening hours benefit. Disney confirmed that both of these perks will continue through 2025.
